Re: End of the Drew Breed Era ?

Can't be happy with this stat, but it's very likely Brees was injured;
"Brees was just 2-of-12 on throws of at least 15 yards down the field Sunday (16.7 percent). That was his worst completion percentage on such throws in the last 10 seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Info."

I don't think there is a question of Brees being hurt but rather how bad is it, he clearly can't throw the deep ball.

Re: End of the Drew Breed Era ?

The BNG is the place I go so that I can be knowledgeable about my Saints. We have so many great members who bring in and share tremendous info. Our members help keep me sane when things go wrong...........

Having said that "Stop with the doom and destruction talk"!!!
We have already taken steps to turn the team around. Now give it time! There will be growing pains but we are growing and getting better. Who Dat!

Brees holding on to the ball for too long is just as much of an issue as the line, and when he had the time to throw he couldn't get the ball there. He is done, now more than ever because he got hurt, but rather than make the tough call and bench him Payton will let him play. Brees will look like a shell of his former self for the rest of the year while we rely on the running game and defense to win games.

Listen, I didn't want to see Brees go out like this but after watching his post game presser and reading about the parts they edited out I was shocked at his attitude. I think, for the first time, he knows he's done.
The ducks came as a result of a hit Drew took, and that was a result of some pitiful blocking on Strief's part. Our O-line has been having it's lunch handed to them from Gerald McCoy & Co for as long as I can remember. So what I am struggling with more than anything is, knowing that, why can't we chip block or stunt or SOMETHING to help the cause?! Definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over w/ different results expected.

When this team was at its peak, what I distinctly remember us being good at was, IN-GAME-ADJUSTMENTS. I just don't see it anymore. AM I missing something? It just doesn't seem to happen that way anymore. In years past, from the first quarter through the course of a game, you could ALWAYS see us make some type of adjustment and I can't find any examples of that happening these days.

Maybe it's all relative. Maybe those adjustments were easier because we had more depth, and the bad drafts, poor contracts, etc. are all just magnified as a result.

Re: End of the Drew Breed Era ?

Admittedly, I haven't watched a game this year, but what happened to "Brees is in mid season form" as the preseason ended?

He was until the hits on his shoulder.

He barely played this pre-season, which tells me this may have been an issue before the season started.

He didn't look so hot last season. Ducks, poor judgement, but what I looked for the most was the throwing behind recievers that = arm strenghth.

This says it all for me. It's time to pass the torch. I still think we should see how the next few games play out and if we lose like the first two then have the Rookie QB come in and start tooling for next season. Bring in a lot of new rookies and start all over again. Payton and Brees deserve to stay as long as they want. We would've never had a Superbowl without them or the most gutsy call ever in the NFL, an onside kick to start off the second half of a Superbowl.

We also have Dempsey's kick. WE ARE A BIG PART OF THE NFL AND THE FANS ARE THE BEST!

Re: End of the Drew Breed Era ?

With the 75th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft,
the New Orleans Saints selected quarterback Garrett Grayson of Colorado State. Grayson is now the heir apparent to Drew Brees. He was a first-team All-MWC player in 2014 and named the MWC offensive player of the year.

Grayson is considered one of the top quarterbacks in this year's draft behind Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, and he was the third quarterback to come off the board after those two. Winston and Mariota are considered perhaps the most starter-ready quarterbacks in the class, with players like Bryce Petty, Brett Hundley and Grayson occupying the second tier. NFL teams did plenty of homework, though. Grayson has a high ceiling and might not be too far from being a starter.

Grayson is the most productive quarterback in Colorado State history, owning school records in passing yards, passing touchdowns, completions and completion percentage. He also performed well in the Senior Bowl and looked solid at his pro day, posting good measurements and throwing well. He didn't take part in the scouting combine, but participated in drills and measurements at his pro day, running the 40-yard dash in 4.72 and 4.78 seconds, the 3-cone drill in 6.97 seconds and the short shuttle in 4.35 seconds. He also had a 34-inch vertical leap and a broad jump of 10'1.

Grayson will need to sit and learn for a season or two before he can be a starter, but he has the potential. He has shown great accuracy and can throw the deep ball well, though his decision-making leaves something to be desired.

Re: End of the Drew Breed Era ?

The fact that Garrett Grayson kind of looks like Aaron Rodgers makes me want to see him on the field as quick as possible.
